Does StarTeam support the Borland License Server (BLS)?


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005 to 2009
  • Product Component: Licensing
  • Platform/OS Version: All

Yes, the Borland License Server has been supported since the release of StarTeam 2005 R2. In fact StarTeam now supports three types of license management:

  1. StarTeam "Native" licensing
  2. BLS licensing
  3. FLEXlm licensing

All of the above licensing types can be used interchangeably and in any combination at the same time. StarTeam administrators simply identify which license type is to be used for each user ID enabled on the server.

Please note there is no additional charge for StarTeam BLS-enabled licenses. The BLS software is available at no extra charge and an email with download information is sent along with the license key. Should you wish to convert existing licenses from one type to another (e.g. from Native to BLS), please contact your Account Executive to make this request.
